  1. I didn't even do one patriotic manicure!

  2. Whoa! I have that exact waterfall mani (with the same colors!) on my blog two years ago. Weird.

    1. It wasn't my intention! I've seen this simple mani done over and over again and don't know who the credit goes to.

  3. I love them all but especially the Stars and Stripes stamped mani! Beautiful!

  4. All of these are awesome! I only did one Patriotic Mani this year and I usually do several.

  5. I only did 1 myself, will post tomorrow (may not do a blog post for it), but I really love your #4! The double stamping gets me every time.

  6. These are great designs! I don't know that I'll get a design on my nails for tomorrow.

  7. Great manis. I'm wearing a sparkly blue from Inglot to get close to Independence Day but nothing as pretty as yours.

  8. I totally didn't do a 4th of July manicure this year! But I am really feeling your reverse waterfall mani!

  9. Gorgeous manis! I have not done a single 4th mani, and I have bright purple on now so its not looking promising. LOL

  10. I am loving that last mani! You really got creative with these.

  11. I love that waterfall mani! Gorgeous. Happy 4th!

  12. I like those manis! Which did you end up wearing today?

  13. All of these look fantastic! I think I like the waterfalls and the stars and stripes best.

  14. All of these are so awesome! I think the last one is my favorite, love the silver in there. :)

  15. 4 beautiful nail art looks, I hope you had a lovely 4th of july x
